Glassworks in LouisvilleAs every Road Trips Foodie knows, a terrific beverage needs a special glass: its visual impression adds to the enjoyment of the drink. Unlike any other medium, glass allows light to pass through and illuminate its holdings for tantalizing visual appeal, and it can be shaped and designed to enhance the taste, aroma, and overall experience of the beverage. Artists who work with glass have created drinkware worthy of ritual offerings to the gods, and all are on exhibit (and available for purchase) at the Glassworks, 815 West Market Street, Louisville, Kentucky, at “Cheers! A Drinking Glass Invitational” in the Glassworks’ Vonfire Gallery. There are almost 30 artists participating, coming mostly from the Bluegrass State, but also from a half-dozen other states — North Carolina to Washington.

You can see the glass exhibit now through January 30, 2010, but if you’re going to be driving through Louisville in January, consider timing your visit for one of these special events. On January 2, 2010, and January 9, 2010, there are a pair of “Blow Your Own Beer Mug” workshops. These are all-day events (10 a.m. to 5 p.m.), costing $80 and requiring reservations. Then, on January 30, 2010, you can “Blow Your Own Wineglass” — another 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. workshop, for $95, and also requiring advance reservations. To sign up, call 502:584-4510.

Glassworks in LouisvilleLocated in Glassworks, one of the nation’s largest and most complete glass centers, the Vonfire Gallery represents emerging national and international glass artists. The gallery exhibits the work of some of the most innovative contemporary studio glass artists who are on the verge of becoming significant influences within the contemporary glass movement through four rotating exhibitions a year as well as continuous representation of selected artists from around the world.
